There is no word yet on the sites being considered, but WWE must find an arena that no sports team play in that can meet the weight and power requirements of the ThunderDome setup. A newer arena is preferable as the weight of the ThunderDome setup will not work with older buildings. A major city for travel is also needed as WWE crews come and go weekly.
WWE is leaving the Amway Center due to the NBA restart in December. The Orlando Magic uses the Amway Center as an arena. In addition, the Orlando Solar Bears of the East Coast Hockey League are scheduled to resume their activities in mid-December at the Amway Center.
Florida reporter Jon Alba revealed on Twitter that WWE’s contract with the Amway Center says they will be completed on Tuesday, November 24. You can see his tweet about the contract below.
If WWE leaves the Amway Center on November 24, it looks like the RAW episode of November 23 may be the last show to take place at this location. This will be the post-Survivor Series edition of RAW.
WWE’s original contract with the Amway Center was due to expire at the end of October, but it was recently extended for another month, taking them through November and the Survivor Series pay-per-view on November 22.
Stay tuned for updates.
The contract itself has not changed between #WWE and Amway Center. With the #NBA is looking to start its season in December, and the #ECHLOrlando Solar Bears will also debut the game around December 11, which appears to be the end of the ThunderDome run in Orlando.
